I agree with you. I like several things about running a wider tire. One down side in my thinking is a wider tire will run over more imperfections in the road and transfer that to its passengers.
As funny as it would look, I would go with 245/75/16 if that would give me the ride quality I need so I don't end wanting to kill my driver because they just ran over the 5th man hole cover in a two block stretch. I don't remember them being that difficult to drive around when I used to drive. I do remember being able to avoid or go over them without the tires touching. Living with pain is horrible. Being chauffeured while in pain by driver who manages to hit every crack, pothole, manhole cover and curb during right hand turns is awful! I need to give that driver every advantage I can. Starting with the 4 inch lift.
I'm sorry I got side tracked.
Unfortunately my decision cannot be based on looks. It truly sucks. I'm recovering from several surgeries. Any bouncing movement puts me in so much pain I end up sick to my stomach.
What I need at this time is comfort..
